Taking a year or two out isn't an issue for most employers. But you will need to identify and communicate the benefits you have gained that will be attractive and relevant to employers.
This means making a convincing case for your gap year.
Employers are looking for graduates who come to them already equipped with soft skills such as teambuilding, negotiation and interpersonal skills. Many of them regard a constructive gap year as an ideal way of gaining these.
Carl Gilleard, Chief Executive of The Association of Graduate Recruiters (1998-2013)
